Today’s song is “It’s Alright Out of Sight” by Drive the Bus. The New Jersey band is comprised of father and son Michael (guitar/vocals) and Samuel Lagana (percussion/vocals), along with Dean Dunlevy (bass/vocals), Dan Senico (guitar/vocals), and Cameron Friedman (keys/vocals).
The inspiration for the band coming together was the passing of Michael’s wife Judy. When she was still alive he had said if anything happened to her he would spend his life surfing and making music. And that is exactly what he is doing with Drive the Bus.
This sextet ranges in ages from 17-19 with father Michael 53 as their “resident old guy.” The mix of ages each member brings something different to the music making it a fun and energetic band.
Their smooth country twang has a sultry rock infusion that makes for a sweet listen. This band takes bluesy guitars and pairs them with Americana folk that would be home for fans of The Who and Grand Funk Railroad.
This song is the latest single off their upcoming debut album, Head of the Class due out this May.
